Is Democracy In Trouble In North Carolina?

Feb 6, 2018

A column last year in the News & Observer of Raleigh declared "North Carolina is no longer classified as a democracy."  The article went viral and prompted a range of heated reactions, even death threats.  The writer, Andrew Reynolds, a professor of political science at UNC Chapel Hill, recently updated us to say things had only gotten worse.  He joined BPR's Jeremy Loeb and WUNC's Jeff Tiberii to discuss.  

Tiberii also discussed the legislature, campaign finance reports, and his interview with Governor Roy Cooper, which was part of WUNC's series "Hitting Home: The Opioid Crisis in North Carolina."
